“KCCA as a new team in place has witnessed an improvement in waste collection and disposal at the city operated Kitezi landfill,” Kawuju said.

He added: “When KCCA commenced work in April 2011, the waste deposited at the landfill was 16.000 tonnes and by October 2013 KCCA had registered 32,000 tonnes which is an increment of 100% of the waste collected and deposited at landfill.”

These reforms in the city have yielded tremendous results in the various facets of service delivery.

“These eight collection trucks include three compacting type which have a capacity of 20,000kgs each, five skip loading trucks loading capacity of up to 10,000kgs each with 11 skips contingent to it and a total of 55 skips.”
